Joint FERMA/ ECIIA Conference
At the junction of corporate governance and cyber security
29 June 2017 from 16:15 to 18:45
European Parliament, Room JAN 6Q1, Brussels

Kindly hosted by MEP Antanas GUOGA

Conference report

A joint working group, representing risk managers and internal auditors from 8 EU countries and  6 different economic sectors (bank, transport, defense, IT, food services and telecom) has developed recommendations for organizations on innovative ways to internally organize the management of cyber risks.

These recommendations include a cyber risk governance model between the key internal stakeholders and the Risk and Audit Committees.

The proposed model will increase cyber-resilience, define the key stakeholders and the conditions for success. Developing cyber governance principles for greater resilience is supported by the World Economic Forum, which published a report in January 2017: « Advancing Cyber Resilience: Principles and Tools for Boards ».

The aim of the conference is to present and discuss the proposed report and respond to the following fundamental question: is there a governance model that would support the resilience of the European economy in terms of effective and efficient risk management and compliance?

Although companies must remain free to organize the way they manage risk, aware that there is no « one size fits all » solution, whatever the approach taken, it is essential to embed cyber security throughout the organization from the top to the operational level.

FERMA statement on WannaCry

Jo Willaert

Statement from Jo Willaert, President of FERMA

The latest cyber attack illustrates clearly that the management of cyber risks should be an enterprise-wide project directed from board level within a sound governance framework. It also shows us that private sector organisations, suppliers of critical IT infrastructure, governments and security agencies must collaborate to build resilience to ever-shifting cyber threats.

FERMA is currently completing an important cyber security initiative in cooperation with the European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA). On 29 June at the European Parliament, we will publish our recommendations for organisations for creating a robust cyber risk governance.

At the FERMA Forum 2017 from 15-18 October in Monaco, Jamie Shea, Deputy Assistant Secretary General for the Emerging Security Challenges Division of NATO will be our closing keynote speaker. http://archives.ferma.eu/ferma-forum-2017/speaker/jamie-shea/
